Fishcake Friday

Hello.  Welcome.  I was working on a little something when Mr Postman arrived with happy mail and I got all distracted.  A set of Nutcracker stamps I was lucky enough to win in a blog hop over at Mark's Finest Papers.  I haven't joined in the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge for a few weeks so I decided I had to ink these up and make a fun card

The challenge this week is to make a rainbow so after I stamped and coloured my Nutcracker I fussy cut him and mounted him on rainbow corrugated card.  Then I added a stamped Hero Arts greeting which I coloured in a rainbow of distress colours.  I think this will be a perfect card for a male friend.  A nutcracker is not just for Christmas.........
